Default Attaching small flat back crystals to rosettes

For those that make these, do you just glue them? If so, do you use E6000 or hot glue? I'm concerned about them coming loose for babies posing a choking hazard. Thanks so much!

I pretty much always use E6000 to attach anything like that. Just in case.

I use hot glue and have never had them come off. I always attach a small parts choking hazard warning to items for children though and advise parents to not allow them to be worn unsupervised.

Thanks ladies. I love E6000 but I have a heck of a time getting the top off. My fingers are sore after I open that sucker. I wish it had a better top. Ugh.

Oh thank you! I will try that. I had tried some other pliers that I used for jewelry making but they didn't work. Great tip!
